A flash flood watch is in effect for much of the state until 1 p.m. Saturday.

The flooding threat will continue to rise as the rain and storms envelope the state.

The hardest hit parts of the state happened near Ada where it saw more than eight inches of rain. 

Pontotoc County Emergency Manager Chad Letellier said they have conducted four water rescues in the county and three vehicles have stalled in Ada.

After hours of heavy rain, the Oklahoma City metro was placed under a flash flood warning until 3:45 p.m. 

So far, there have not been widespread reports of stalled out vehicles in Oklahoma City, but if you see running water along the street, turn around, don't drown.

A cold front will slide through the state Friday and create a fall feel to the air by late day with north winds and temps in the 60s.

The rain chances will diminish overnight with some spotty light rain or drizzle around Saturday morning.

The flooding threat shifts into southeast Oklahoma.

With rain chances moving Southeast the Sooners' and Cowboys' games are looking dry with chances less than 20 percent.
